” things are
made to look the same only when we fail to examine them too closely” – Nancy Cartwright, 1983
so what is the nature of evidence in the academe – who is required to provide what evidence and why…

all so that you may feel you are a part of the community of protest
you have replayed, captured and colonized his meaning
